Safari Parks

The first safari park to open in the United Kingdom was Longleat which opened in 1966 and originally concentrated on lions. Other safari parks followed suit, some specialising in other animals such as bears. Unfortunately one famous safari park, Windsor, has closed and was taken over by Legoland. Safari Parks differ from zoos in that they normally have fewer species of animal, normally the larger more dramatic animals in large enclosures. Instead of viewing the animals through cages you view the animals either in a car or coach in there enclosures.
